approach looking at the entire case and come up with some recommendations. >> could you give us a couple of areas that you see -- you are watching all this unfold -- that you think needs to change? >> first of all, having an uncontrolled spill at 5,000 feet below water was something that was new to us. most of our plans were developed for dealing with finite spills. you have a ship with a certain capacity. if it strikes a rock, there is a maximum amount of oil that will be discharged from that ship or a shore facility. you can supply the proper amount of equipment for that. we had something that was happening day after day. it was groundhog day force. everything seemed to be the same, except for when the weather and the kurds were different each day, pushing the oil in different directions. we had to be reactive to that. i think we learned a lot from that. it is difficult for a lot of people who are not familiar with the maritime environment where things are dynamic. they change from day to day. you have to have adaptable forces. that is one of the views about the fold -- the postcard. -

rose for the work of your office to help us achieve even more cost savings. it is important that we are able to make these changes with the way our deficit is running. my question is related to the census and the inmate population of the jails. how is that? i know a lot of inmates were released after the problem with the crime lab. "since that time, is that remaining stable? is that fluctuating up or down? >> the census is starting to come up somewhat. we are still at a 24% decrease from prior year. we are at 1685 today and we normally would run about 1800. it is starting to creep up. the sheriff anticipates we will be near 1800 by the end of the calendar year. chairperson avalos: colleagues, any other comments or questions? if we could open this up for public comment? it is for item six. we will close public comment. supervisor mirkarimi: motion to approve, as amended. chairperson avalos: we will accept the budget analyst's recommendations without objection. to the full board with recommendation. madam clerk, if you could please call 7 through 9. >> item 7, resolution adopting find

claims iran may be financing attacks by the taliban against u.s. interests in afghanistan. according to the sunday times in london, taliban militants are getting paid thousands to carry out these attacks. nbc's tom aspell is in kabul with the latest. tom with a good day to you, what can you tell us? >> well, the british sunday times says one of its reporters has met with a taliban treasurer from wardak province west of kabul who makes regular trips into kabul to go to five iranian construction companies which then give him cash to carry back to the shadowed governor of wardak province, who distributes the money to taliban fighters. they each get paid about $200 a month and are given a bonus of a thousand dollars if they kill an american and $6,000 if they destroy an armored vehicle belonging to the americans. now the "sunday times" says these companies have been in existence about six months, take money from foreign donors, for reconstruction projects, send the profits back to tehran by the banking system and return some of the money to kabul to be distributed to the taliban treasure
. by and large, you have a few that are using them in an active way, warehouse building, private homes. >> but a point of clarification, are they not acceptable or not available to certain other areas of the city and the business yes in those areas, because the beat is -- perhaps we don't know who opens the beat, but the person who does own the beat has just allowed it to become inactive. the special patrols that belong on the all-in-one beat can't provide services in a beat they don't own or what. >> they can share the beat, but it has to be authorized. >> by the beat owner? >> yes. >> if an area doesn't have an active beat or someone actively working in it, they can't call up an individual patrol special and ask them to come and be there person unless they have a guard card, and there are many other guard cards across the city. they can phone up and say, can you come and watch my building. can you stand guard at my a.t.m.? they can get the services, but not the ones labeling themselves patrol specialists. >> can we have an exact number of patrol specials and patrol systems out there?
with a recommendation. supervisor chu: the item is before us. i believe we will need a roll call. before we do that, i want to thank supervisor alioto-pier for her leadership in bringing this item forward and bringing people together today in this room. i also want to take a minute to thank people on both sides have come here to share your experiences. it has been very educational to hear about your experiences. i want to say thank you for that. the other thing that is very interesting in this room is as i listened to testimony on both sides, i think both of you are right. i do think in terms of voluntary services and treatment programs that those are probably the most effective programs when people do want and are part of the solution and believe they have a say in their treatment. i also agree with the other side in the sense that sometimes there is a need for a bit more. there is a need for some additional help. what has been compelling to me is the testimony from ms. lacey, a professional in this industry for many years who has worked in the behavioral courts who has seen firsthand what the court
.org. >>> an apparent discrimination, stan jeter is here to tell us more. stan what is going on? >> george, evangecal leaders in columb are outraged by a new ordnance that is aimed squarely at its community and force hundreds of evangelil churches to close their doors while leaving catholic churches untouched. >> ordnance requires all churchs to reinforce church structures, make them handicapped accessible and update operating license >> 90 percent of the christian churches don't meet the ordnance requirement because they are neighborhood churcs. >> we have problems because the churches that have been operating having built in places and have earthquake-proof foundations and destroy the whole house and if we don't comply with these requirements, they'll close them down immediely. new they will not apply equally to catholic churches. it reflects a bias against evangelicals. >> there was a lot of concern that the evangelical churches were growing so mh. there are congregations here with 50,000 people, 70,000, 150,00 there was a lot of concern. the traditional church put on pressure to stop this advance
on afghanistan? 1,201 u.s. soldiers have died in afghanistan over the last nine years. as of july so far in 2010 alone. >> question, does president obama have an exit strategy for afghanistan? pat buchanan? >> he does not. they are moving away from the mid 2011 deadline from the beginning of withdrawal of troops to show we are committed for a longer period of time. john, the problem is, we can't win the war with the forces we have in there. everybody knows it. however, the country is divided. the administration is divided. they don't want to lose this war and have the taliban execute. they don't want to keep bleeding the country either. they have a real problem in this sense. the liberal ring of the democratic party is moving away from the administration and there's a small antiwar conservative movement that is growing in the media and on capitol hill. so we are coming to a head in december when they had the december review of afghanistan. >> eleanor. >> i don't think they are working away from the july 2011 to begin exiting and they have a review planned for the end of december. and general
others to move with us. a little background. the threat. it is changing. since the end of the cold war, while the chances of an all-out global nuclear war have declined significantly, thank god, i think the chances of a nuclear strike have increased. during the cold war, the american, nato, and soviet military's were diligent and professional in the way we handle our nuclear-weapons. but we were also very lucky. we had several near misses, including but not limited to the cuban missile crisis. if we think that our luck will hold out with nine nuclear states and growing, plus the spread of technology to enrich the new clear -- and rich uranium, i think the world must think i knew. nine countries have nuclear weapons now. more are seeking them. terrorists are seeking nuclear weapons and nuclear. -- and i have no doubt that certain groups would use them if they had them. the know-how and capability to build a nuclear weapon is widely available, something we thought would only be the province of nations years ago. but it has changed. with the goal of nuclear power, and we will be talking a
for joining us tonight. i'm will thomas. >> and i'm maureen umeh. the storm is no longer a threat to the u.s. and as fox's jennifer davis reports, people on the cape are breathing a huge sigh of relief. >> reporter: cape cod did take hurricane earl seriously. but the storm was barely here before it was again. and now folks say it is time to enjoy the last holiday weekend of the summer. billed as a lion, earl came more like a lamb. he allowed nathan to sleep peacefully through the night. >> he was 0 okay. >> reporter: with the storm approaching many held off on holiday plans, either hanging out or hunkering down. with earl's grey skies turning as blue as these bride maids dresses this young couple's worries went away with earl's departure from cape cod. >> sunny and beautiful and the breeze is great and couldn't ask for anything better. >> very nice. >> reporter: were you worried yesterday? >> very. but hey, there is nothing you can do. you go with the cards that are dealt to you. >> reporter: bridegroom and wedding party rode off to their reception. while business owners and inn keepers star
. in >> but i hope is that everyone with heroes. it is not just us, but so many people crying out that they are trying to stop. >> they do not need to go far for stability. >> my son was shot 18 times. >> she had a son, too. >> the have not caught anyone yet. he is not here to be a part of this. i think about [unintelligible] there are so many things to think about. >> only so many things someone can do about the injustice these mothers are dealing with. right now, they hope gatherings like this send a message to those responsible for their pain. >> this has got to stop. they are taking people talk to children. >> that are taking people's children. they do not know what they're doing to people talk to families. >> they have sold half of the 148 murders. last year they sold about 60% of their 238 murders. at police headquarters, wbal-tv 11 news. family was praying for answers and just blocks away 15-year-old boy was shot in the face. if it happened on pennsylvania avenue. the victim was taken to a local hospital and at last check was in stable condition. police say an unidentified
stay with us for 18 months to three years. and that includes an agriculture farm, where they grow tilapia and they market it themselves and the money goes to them. and we have an organic farming project as well, where they can farm produce that they can later sell to the markets. my life before was terrible. it wasn't good. i was doing into troubles a lot. i was facing the courthouse, had many charges, and it wasn't helpful. the best thing about sanctuary is you learn new things, you learn how to communicate with your peers, your adults, your staffs, and helps you stay out of trouble. being able to recover and be able to find a means to help them through their treatment, some of these kids don't have that opportunity, and guam sanctuary, this is the only place they have. here on guam, you will often hear [speaks in chamorro]. and [speaks in chamorro], is a word that is used to celebrate or elevate a particular group or cause. and so here at sanctuary, because we celebrate and we elevate young people and their families, we say [speaks in chamorro], we celebrate young people and the
should be used for a more important project, the trimming and removal or assistance of those two projects, of dangerous trees that have been previously marked by i think part and ran -- park and rec and other agencies. i think a lot of those trees are still standing, just waiting for gravity to fall. i would like to suggest that john mclaren park be checked out. there has already been one death with subsequent city liability payment, and also, i think that sunset boulevard and the presidio drive should also be checked, even though i have noticed that some of the trees have been trimmed in the two areas, but still, when i drive on those and other areas in the city, i feel that the maintenance has been kind of substandard. i do notice that in some of those areas, there have been very nice new trees planted, but three, four, five, six months later, there has been an obvious growth of weeds, especially on portola drive, which is interesting because it is it in a fairly affluent neighborhood. anyway, i think it is noteworthy that san francisco conservation corps do this kind of work because it
-care. >> reporter: that's playing right into republican hands. >> i believe washington is crushing us in spending and debt. >> reporter: is this a vote for republicans or just against democrats? >> if republicans win control of congress, it's because voters are voting against democrats. >> reporter: while conservative tea party candidates may have complicated republican efforts. experts believe they are on track to regain control of the house. with high-profile democrats in tight races, harry reid and barbara boxer, republicans could make a run at power in the senate, too. feeling that wave, mr. obama has been left with little choice but to blame his predecessor and plead for patience. >> if the economy was a car and they drove it into the ditch, they come and tap us on the shoulder and they say, we want the keys back. you can't have the keys back. you don't know how to drive. >> reporter: a message that doesn't appear to be working. >> that effort has failed. the president can continue to work to try to show voters. that they need more time. that was what ronald reagan did in 1982. at this point
to our economy, so please do not put this burden on us. chair avalos: thank you. next speaker, please. >> my name is -- then he. " i work for -- i just wanted to touch on some things about drinking -- thank you. if you go to a restaurant, the average patron will have two drinks or so with their meal. i do not think they are not born to pay the extra nickel or dime for a drink at a restaurant. -- not going to pay the extra nickel or dime for a drink and restaurant. i do not think they are going to miss the sixth the one at a bar if they have won, but if they have one, that is when the problem arises -- if they have one. i don't think extra 10 cents is going to keep them from drinking. it really does have an impact that brings positivity to the community. not to have that extra drink. thanks. chair avalos: thank you. next speaker, please. >> hi, my name is craig, and i have a business with my wife, and a way to keep my comments directed towards the budget and finance committee and not about prohibition. one, i work between 60 and 70 hours per week. this summer, it got to the point where
people use the internet. garlg house is now aol's highest ranking man in silicon valley. fred garlghouse, president of consumer applications to yahoo and once so loyal, he shaved a y in his head and it has peanut butter. joining us from forbes, you are one of the first people to lead aol because you are willing to say, here's what we need to do. is that fair compliment? >> i think one of the key things about any turn around environment is being comfortable speaking very candidly about the problems very iently. i think sometimes, particularly a company like aol that is today a very different company than 18 months ago, people forget, america obanline, we were the people that brought america online, aol. we lost our way, i can't point to how and where and why and sometime in the timewarner merger, aol lost its way. we're in the process of getting our mojo back. three time theres capture that. tim armstrong from google was a major step doing that. he's hired key leaders and described a strong management team rebuilt. the second thing that does touch on, as you introduced, the contrast india
